    Default Moth ID, please!

    Shot this rather unique looking moth in the Catchment area today. Note the serrated wing edges.

    Species ID?

    Ha! I recognise this one. Shot before by Johnny Wee here.

    Erebus ephesperis according to Roger. This is the most pristine shot I've seen of this species so far, Horace. Must've just eclosed somewhere nearby. It usually bashes itself silly when startled, crashing through the undergrowth and camouflaging itself against dead leaves and twigs.

    Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try
